Putin terms Mueller probe in USA ''political games''

U.S. President Donald Trump left smiles beside Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki Finland Monday

U.S. Senate Democratic leader Charles Schumer speaks to the news media about President Donald Trump's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, U.S., July 16, 2018.

Who, exactly, congressmen will be invited to the meeting - not yet known.

"There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russian Federation, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals", he said.

"Donald Trump knows what he has done and he knows what might the Russians are aware of", he said.

"So many people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki".

Referring to the Skripal case, Mr Putin said: "We would like to get at least some sort of a document, evidence about it".

Just days before the Helsinki summit, the Justice Department indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers accused of hacking into Democrat email accounts and releasing stolen information during the election.

"Today was a bad day for the American brand, for the American people, and for our allies", said Republican Sen.

The Croatian President, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, is a learned woman who fills in the entire criteria of being a president. Mario Mandzukic of Croatia scores an own goal to put France in front. "We hope to overcome all the difficulties", he said.

At the news conference Monday, a reporter for The Associated Press asked Putin directly if he had incriminating material on President Trump.

After all, that was the ultimate goal of Russia's election meddling, USA officials have assessed. "You can say it's not much, but neither Putin nor Trump could do more".

Representative Steve Womack said he was "disappointed" that Trump "downplayed the very real threat Russian Federation poses to our country and our values".

"President Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin", McCain said.

Similarly, Putin is expected to push for the United States to withdraw its support for NATO's presence in countries bordering Russia, and for the U.S.to withdraw its military support for Ukraine, which continues to fight pro-Russian separatists within its territory.

Unsurprisingly, Russians welcomed Trump's suggestion that he trusts Putin more than US intelligence agencies.

Beyond firing off tweets critical of the US's historically close European allies, Trump also reportedly arrived 30 minutes late to the first day of the summit, missing two big meetings with other world leaders and causing NATO's secretary-general to call an emergency session.

"I still shake my head trying to understand what was discussed during the two-hour one-on-one, what was discussed between the two sides in their bilateral meeting", Brennan said.
